Bubble Bursts; Rouvet, Mulders, and Bosch Split the Money

BrandonBloom • Level 15: Blinds 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

During the hand-for-hand phase, three players bowed out at the same time. In the first hand, Felipe Ketzer raised to 9,000 from the hijack and Emmanuel Rouvet three-bet jammed from the small blind for 87,000. Action folded back to Ketzer who made the call.

Emmanuel Rouvet: {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Felipe Ketzer: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

The board ran out {q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{9-Spades}{10-Hearts} and Ketzer won the pot, ending Rouvet's tournament life on the bubble.

In the second hand, after Ramiro Petrone raised to 10,000 in early position, Daan Mulders three-bet to 27,000 on the button.

Petrone then moved all-in, and Mulders called off for 125,000.

Daan Mulders: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Ramiro Petrone: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}

Mulders had run into the ultimate preflop cooler on the bubble. The dealer spread a flop of {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}, giving Petrone top set, but Mulders now had a gutshot straight draw.

The turn {6-Spades} and river {q-Clubs} couldn't save Mulders however, and he was also eliminated on the bubble.

In another hand, with roughly 100,000 in the pot on a {q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Spades}{7-Spades}{3-Diamonds} completed board, Oliver Bosch was in the big blind and had check-called all in for his stack of approximately 120,000 against Kayhan Mokri in early position.

There was a long period of anticipation as the two players awaited the other tables to complete their hands on the bubble. The two talked to each other, but never fully revealed their holdings. Reportedly, Bosch had said he had a pair, but when he was asked if it was the same pair, he responded with "no chance", leaving both players uncertain as to who would win the pot.

Eventually, numerous cameras swarmed the table and the players chuckled at the sheer amount of people surrounding them. The tournament director then instructed the players to simultaneously turn over their cards.

Bosch showed {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, but it was no good as Mokri tabled {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts} to claim the pot and eliminate Bosch, who would chop the minimum payouts with the other players eliminated on the bubble.

As a result, Rouvet, Mulders, and Bosch will split the 326th and 327th place money, collecting €5,907 each.
